Bet of the day Race 2 8.In Fashion $2.90 FF 1st $2.80

Multi of the Day with In Fashion and Race 4 5.Euka Lady $3.20 FF $92.80 for every $10 returned

Big value bet of the day Race 6 8.Beautiful Man $21 FF

Race 1

Confidence: 1/5 with many live chances.

6.La Soeur  1st $5 ran home well last start and more ground suits.

3.Charred had no luck 3 wide in a stronger field last start.

5.Spectra  needs a good run- had a few goes now.

Race 2

Confidence; 2/5

8.In Fashion 1st $2.80  ran a very good race on debut after getting hampered in the straight. Then last start at Tauranga, looked good before the start, began well but was allowed to drift too far back, then once balanced up didn’t seem keen to be near others and went a bit wider, but the way she wound up late for a close 4th, alongside subsequent winner Qiji Swordsman, means she is certainly capable of winning this. Plus the blinkers go on which she definitely needs. RP $2.60, opened  $3.40 FF and into $2.90 FF


2.Checkers nicely bred and ready to win on debut from the Baker/Forsman team. Nice win two trials back but had to be ridden right out to run a close second in his last one.

3.Enrichment won her trial well and checked in her last one.

Race 3

1.Arturo  1st $2 has had a few trials and is nicely bred. Strikes the right field to debut in.

5.Nubian Smile won her trial well and is ready to go.

Race 4

Confidence: 2/5

5.Euka Lady 1st $2.90  ran a solid third on debut and she led all the way in a recent jumpout at New Plymouth which can be seen here

She has a nice action and from the draw can jump and lead or be on it and looks hard to beat. RP $3, $3.20 FF


1.Deerfield responded well late in his last trial to win well. Gets 4kgs off and looks ready to be right in this.

4.Mallard Drake has J Parkes up which means he is ready to fire for A. Fieldes.

Race 5

5.Enduring Love won’t get a better chance to win from the inside draw.

4.Keltic Rockstar will be charging home and the small field suits.

6.Hermes ran on well on debut and 1350m suits.

Race 6

Confidence: 1/5

8.Beautiful Man goes best fresh. The blinkers  go on and the last time that happened he won.  Chris Johnson will suit- the upsetter.

3.Harlem ‘N’ Co ran an improver’s 3rd at Trentham and the early money is for him. $6.50 into $5 FF

2.The Growler gets 4kgs off and had no luck last start 3 wide in the open. Drawn better and gets 4kgs off against a a weaker field.

7.Viva Lilli will find this a bit easier than last start and J Parkes will give it every chance.

1.Mikjene 1st $5.90 won well in good time last start. Up in weight but it is a weak field.

Race 7

4.Te Akau Dragon looked ready to fire fresh up after his trial win. Strikes a weak field.

8.Happy Tav 1st $2.10 very good second last start and with a good run is the main danger.

Race 8

5.Golden Age ran on well second up for 4th. Side winkers go on and 1600m suits now.

2.McHale  ran on strongly to a nice horse last start. Gets 2kgs off.

7.Swift Saoirse good second last start. Improver and can win with a good run.

12.Calling Us Home will appreciate the 1600m.

4.Fiery Dragon drawn to get all favours and Baker/Forsan would not persevere if they thought he couldn’t win a race.
